Notes and Editorial Reviews

"She's in magnificent voice, and spellbinding, as always" -- The Guardian

"Christine Brewer is one of the most appealing singers of our time, but she has the misfortune to be only rarely recorded. Voices as warm, large and glamorous as hers are never common, and all the time hers seems to be getting larger and more glamorous without losing its warmth ... If there is something outsize about the whole thing – with Roger Vignoles gamely turning himself into a miniature orchestra – it is exuberant and heart-warming, and a disc to be cherished" -- International Record Review

"This is singing of rare charm and versatility, at both ends of a vast emotional spectrum" -- The Observer
